HOW BLAINE SAVED GARFIELD Small Circumstance That for the Time Preserved the President From Assassin's Blow. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 20 May 1921
HOW BLAINE SAVED GARFIELD Small Circumstance That for the Time Preserved the President From Assassin's Blow. Due to the seemingly small detail that he was admitted promptly to the home of Secretary Blaine when calling the evening preceding the President’s assassination, James A. Garfield probably owes his lease of life for 12 hours longer. On the evening of July 2, 1881, the President, as he approached the Blaine home, was espied hy the secretary, who was seated at a window. Blaine hurried to the door and had it opened when Garfield arrived at the threshold. In the light of evidence brought out at the trial, Guiteau was dogging the President’s footsteps that evening and intended to fire when he waited for the Blaine door to bo opened. Blaine walked home with the President, and the assassin, again lying in wait, could not bring himself to fire in the dual presence. Before the two parted it was arranged that Blaine should accompany the President next morning to the railway station. Th...
Gasoline Respectability, [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 20 May 1921
Gasoline Respectability, Gigmanic society on the edge of the Sahara supports a magnificent garage. In towns, sprung up many hundred miles apart, in the wilderness of British Columbia, isolated except for the two steel rails of the transcontinental railroad, the well-to-do import automobiles for driving up and down the half-dozen miles which comprise Main street. Motoring is evidently an event of importance, even when a complete circuit of all the available roadway takes less than a half hour. Then there Is always the pleasure and satisfaction to be found in repetition. Indeed, enthusiasm for motoring in several of these towns has led to the formation of automobile clubs, thriving organizations which differ little from their prototypes in other places except in showing a shade more Interest In varnish, let lis say, and a shade less in gasoline.

RAILWAY INQUIRY IN WASHINGTON Excessive Labor Costs and Working Conditions Chief Causes of Trouble. NO CONTROL OVER EXPENSE Prices and Wages Fixed by Government Leave Little Scope for Management. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 20 May 1921
RAILWAY INQUIRY IN WASHINGTON Excessive Labor Costs and Working Conditions Chief Causes of Trouble. NO CONTROL OVER EXPENSE Prices and Wages Fixed by Government Leave Little Scope for Management. Washington, D. C. —In testifying before the Senate Committee on Interstate Commerce in the general investigation into the railroad situation, witnesses for the railroads contended that; (1) The costs of operation are abnormal, owing chiefly to wage scales established by the government which exceed wages paid for similar work In other industries, and to wasteful labor costs, often for work not done, enforced upon the railroads by the so called “National Agreements.” (2) That 07% cents out of every dollar of operating expenses in 1920 were at [trices fixed directly hy the government, or by general market conditions and over which the railroad managements had no control.

Snake's Mesmeric Power. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 20 May 1921
Snake's Mesmeric Power. I had an experience with the mesmeric power of a rattler in southern California which may interest hunters. I was out shooting California quail with a favorite dog of mine, an Irish red setter. I missed the dog when walking up a hill and whistled for him. Thinking he must haje got a point, 1 walked back and looked down into the valley, where 1 saw him setting about 300 yards off. 1 thought it was very odd, for there was no covert there, and it puzzled me, ns I knew there could be no birds there. So I walked up to the dog. When I got about fifty yards off I then ran in, watching him, and when about fifteen yards off I saw’ a big rattlesnake also swaying ids head. I yelled at the dog, who then stepped hack, and I shot the rattler, blowing him off the ground.—Letter in The BHftld.

MANY VARIETIES OF SHARK Some Sea Monsters More to Be Feared Than Others, but All Ferocious to a Degree. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
MANY VARIETIES OF SHARK Some Sea Monsters More to Be Feared Than Others, but All Ferocious to a Degree. There are many families and varieties of the shark. Some of these families are smaller, moi’e cowardly and less successful as killers than other families, says the Kansas City Star, hey are not especially fierce toward lungs that are bigger and stronger aian they. The dusky sharks and the sand sharks are not believed to be man killers, but they are man eaters when the opportunity arrives. The largest and fiercest shark Is the great white shark. His disposition is to kill and eat, and he is so large and strong and self-confident that he will attack anything that swims, and a man is little more than a minnow or a herring to him. The great white shark inhabits the tropic and subtropic seas. The normal length of the teeth is one inch and they are flat, triangular and saw edge. Many of these sharks have been killed that were 30 feet long.
Microbe Factory. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
Microbe Factory. London, England, boasts a microbe factory. Biologists in general, and bacteriologists in particular, are able to serve humanitarian interests only by a close study of authentic strains of recognized bacteria, carefully cultured in their various species and classes, iet it is only quite recently that the needs of medical workers in this respect have been fully met. For their supply of disease microbes for experimental purposes, British scientists were very largely dependent upon the courtesy of colleagues iu other countries. Before the war, fur instance, a polite note to M. Binot of the Pasteur institute in Paris was quite the recognized procedure adopted by a medico who wished to start or add to a microbe menagerie. Characteristically an effort to commercialize this all-im-portant traffic was made by Krai at Prague, but that source of supply was never satisfactory.

REALLY NO PROBLEM AT ALL Case Presented to the Great Sheerluck Bones Hardly Worthy of His Wonderful Brain. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
REALLY NO PROBLEM AT ALL Case Presented to the Great Sheerluck Bones Hardly Worthy of His Wonderful Brain. It was the office of the famous detective, Mr. Sheerluck Bones. The visitor, a man of rather small height but liberal width, sat down. “Married!” snapped Bones. “How do you know I'm married?” gasped the visitor. “By the samples of silk to be matched in your vest-pocket, and your hunted, haunted, expression,” replied Sheerluck. The man gasped. "It is marvelous how you know things!” exclaimed the man. “But it is about my wife 1 came to see you. She acts so queerly lately. She talks to herself all the time, stands before her mirror and talks to herself. It’s awful! And she does the most terrible things. She'll put a cake of soap in the soup and scrub the pans with the soup bone, talking to herself all the time.” And the poor man wiped his brow nervously. “How long has this state of affairs been going on?” asked the great detective. “Oh, for about a week now. And, Mr. Bones, I can’...
frnp-T6Ved'Paint-Spray GSVis. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 27 May 1921
frnp-T6Ved'Paint-Spray GSVis. Painting or varnishing by the spray method has so clearly proved its advantages that improved tools for its use are of general interest. A spraying nozzle, of automatic-pistol form, now being made in Missouri, handles all kinds of liquid coatings, including heavy asphalt paint, with pressures of 80 pounds and less. One model is made to fit the top of an ordinary screw-top jar or metal container. Jars containing different colors may be interchanged in about 30 seconds, the nozzle being cleaned by blowing kerosene and air through it. This method covers up to 30 or 40 square feet of surface a nvnute, while a larger type arranged f&lt;r connection to a special press; re tank, covers as much as 85. An important feature is its easy adjustment from fine shading to heavy-flow coating.—Popular Mechanics Magazine.
